Publisher's Summary

Newly undead shifter-turned-vampire Kita Nekai is coming to grips with the reality that her cat has not awakened since her change. What she needs is a little time to adjust to her new liquid diet and the increasingly complex attraction to her sire, Nathanial. What she gets is a headless harlequin.
With the body count rising, Kita is dragged into a dangerous game of vampire politics. Her involvement draws the attention of an ancient vampire known as the Collector who has a penchant for acquiring the unusual - like a pureblood shifter-turned vampire. Kita still has unfinished business of her own and finds herself deeper in magical debt. It's a bad time to be a kitten who can't slip her skin.
Kalayna Price's debut novel, Once Bitten, earned rave reviews and reached #1 on Amazon.com's "Fantasy Bestseller List." Twice Dead returns readers to a dark, seductive world where magic rules and ancient loyalties collide with modern challenges.

Oay - but our heroine still hasn't grown up!

I don't really agree with the other reviewer about the narrator - I think she does a pretty okay job of personifying the various characters. But...
I said in my review of the first book in this series (Once Bitten) that I found the heroine adolescent and whiny, and she hasn't changed that much! The first 10 or so chapters (about 2, 2.5 hours of listening) were, for me, quite uncomfortable, in that Kita is coerced, totally against her will, into actions and behaviours that are out of character. That the result of some of these actions was a form of sexual relief, made this section uncomfortably close to rape. AND, if Nathaniel hadn't been such an indulgent idiot, and Kita such a head-in-the-sand idiot, the whole section would have been avoided. But then there'd have been no first section of the book... Anyhow, once that section is over with, things do improve, but I wish Kita would stop saying "Crap" every time things go wrong, especially things she reeeeealllly should have see coming!
This is a tense story line, with a blood and body filled resolution very late in the day. Bobby doesn't get much of a look-in, we get a hint of changes in Kita that are extraordinary, she and Nathaniel get no closer to resolving or even flaming talking about their relationship, so no doubt book 3 will start with all the misunderstandings, mistrust and mistakes of books 1 and 2. Will I be reading or downloading it? Not totally sure - but don't' get me wrong, this is a reasonably exciting, nail-biting, cliff-hanging sort of book with suitably bad baddies and are-they-or-aren't-they goodies that is a good way to occupy a few hours - but be prepared for the occasional desire to smack some heads together!

Nice story shame about the narrator

Enjoyed the story line, but what really spoiled it was the narrator, her voice is so flat and un interesting that I nearly gave up on this audiobook after listening to it for 30 minutes. Having nothing else to listen to I decided to persist, the narrator didn't get any better but the story line was interesting enough to keep me going. Lets hope if there is a follow on from this story they will use another narrator.
